What is this cuntfuckery?
I drive a 2008 E90 with N46 engine (yes, the one that leaks like your grandfather's bowels).
Every time I do an oil change I use Castrol Edge 5w-30 oil: which is the oil BMW suggests you use.
The stealershit already fixed all my oil leaks (it was much worse before) but every time I put fully synthetic oil in my car it runs down to mimimum in about 2000kms. I have to put fucking 5 litres in every 2-3 weeks.
Now last month on Labour Day, I needed to drive to my cousins house (like a 80km drive) and my iDrive told me I was low on oil and I was like fuck. Nothing was open. No petrol stations were open, no supermarkets, shopping centres, nothing.
I managed to run across this small convenience store that was just about to close and I bought some Shell 20w-50 Mineral Oil.
After driving there and back, a 200km journey, we had to take a detour because this section of highway was closed so we had to go around. Expecting most of the oil to be used up by now, I drained my oil expecting 1-2 litres from my 4.5 and holy shits and dicks I had the entire amount of mineral oil I put in.
So why the fuck does my car burn fully synthetic like its purp and not burn any of the mineral oil?

Stupidest shit you've done while working on stuff.
I've got a bad history of fucking up my hands.
